    #ActivitiesStrong 6

    This motivational message, delivered by Jerald Cosey, Operational Leadership Development Director at American Senior Communities, is designed to recognize and honor healthcare professionals for their contribution during this worldwide pandemic. Moreover, it influences a cultural movement to reduce isolation to improve person-centered care.
    Today’s operational and clinical leaders navigate “white flag” moments daily. Responsibilities include quality outcomes, operational excellence, and staff development within a highly regulated industry, which may influence burnout as a healthcare professional. Isolation within the elder community is rising and with detrimental consequences. This trend is a reality for many residing within a healthcare community and frequently starts with physical separation before admission.
    Listen in to:
    Bring awareness to isolation’s rise in senior healthcare communities and its impact on physical and mental health outcomes.Uncover strategies designed to improve engagement through intentional relationships between residents and staff.Understand the power of life stories and their potential to reduce isolation and improve outcomes.Learn how to revisit their individualized calling to health care and leave the conference with a visual keepsake as a reminder of that calling.Powered by LinkedSenior.

    How Nontraditional Routes Can Be the Best Paths with Executive Director Courtney Dean

    How Nontraditional Routes Can Be the Best Paths with Executive Director Courtney Dean

    Courtney Dean, Exec. Director with Frontier Management always felt “behind” in education. She took the nontraditional route after high school and was married at 19. She followed her husband who was in the US Air Force to different states and countries - and she waited on edge through his rotations in Iraq and Afghanistan. It was then that Courtney became employed by the USAF in lodging and hospitality. 


    As her work experience grew, she couldn’t help but feel like a late bloomer when pursuing higher education. During her quest for education, Courtney continued to work full-time, some semesters commuting 2 hours North through the snow to get to night classes. Other semesters were spent waking up at 3:30 AM to study and complete lectures before a full day of work.


    In May 2021, at 28 years old, Courtney became a first-generation college graduate. Her advice: It’s never “too late” to START, you’re never “too old” to LEARN, and life is never “too busy” to DO!”


    See her post.
